Economic Importance for Humans

Budgerigars are both seen as a benefit and a possible threat to humans.

Negative: a budgerigar flock can consume a large number of seeds at the same time and that concerns farmers.

Positive: budgerigars are the most known pet bird in the world. There are about 5,000,000 budgerigars in the world, allowing scientists to study them well. In fact, more is known of the budgerigars' biology than of any other parrot.



  1. At least they're not locusts :P

    Also, it appears there are more budgies than Norwegians. Wow o_O

  2. Haha, really? I thought the numbers were about the same :) And there is only one Norwegian that really matters to me <3
